How did Solution Industries begin?

Solution Industries began in the 1990's in Sydney NSW. Joe Stephens has been in the building industry for the last 21 years, bringing him exposure to all different fields of building and construction work, both domestic and commercial. Joe began a network that has grown to include manufacturers in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. Understanding the needs and wants not only of tradesmen and builders, but of their clients and customers, Joe was helping contractors to find solutions for their clients. Thus was started...

Why did Solution Industries begin?

Sourcing and purchasing building products online

Joe Stephens, a tradesman who was onsite during business hours, was often forced to research his equipment or product needs for a job outside of business hours. Searching for commercial quality products online was difficult: if they were to be found, they couldn't necessarily be purchased online, and if they could - it would come at a cost!

Solution Industries was created with tradesmen and DIY in mind as a convenient and efficient means of sourcing high quality products that are usually difficult to get a hold of at your general hardware store, direct from the manufacturer at excellent trade prices.

What services do Solution Industries provide?

Products and tools

The aim is to provide a service where you - the tradesman or DIY - can access quality building products and tools online for the most competitive prices. This is achieved by sourcing products from the best manufacturers in Australia and shipping directly from the manufacturer to you, the tradesman or DIY.


Solution Industries offers free shipping to your door in all capital cities and heavily discounted shipping to rural centers.

Trade Price

Tradesman can register for access to trade prices giving them a further discount. Applying for trade pricing is easy and can be done online by providing your business details and ABN.

How do Solution Industries do it?

This is achieved by sourcing quality products from the best manufacturers in Australia, eg: Shieldcoat, Lime Industries, Spraychief (even more are coming!) and shipping directly from the manufacturer to you. This eliminates warehouse and distribution overheads allowing Solution Industries to pass the huge savings on to you. Selling direct from the manufacturer to you means the same great prices are available to rural tradesman and DIY as city contractors and DIY.
